7 Days - A Week Of Using LattePanda 64 

I have grown quite fond of this device as it consistently exceeds my expectations. A truly wonderful product by an amazing team of developers who have been just amazing throughout the review process. I honestly use it and recommend it constantly.

Windows 10

Latte Panda has Windows 10 on their SBC, it's a lovely pre-loaded version with Arduino controls, as well as Visual Studios, and needs very little work to get it up and running if you have a decent power supply. Many users however have opted to do fresh installations of Windows 10 and depending on the version of the board they are using, might have some difficulty finding the right drivers.

Scratch Installations

After downloading the folder and unzipping it to a usb, you can pop it in to your Latte Panda and on the 32 bit board, simply run the folder's installation script located in the script folder as an administrator. This is all outlined here.
For the 64 bit drivers you'll need to allow windows update to run at least once via an ethernet cable and then open device manager.

Wifi and Audio issues after fresh installation are common and often sorted out by the right drivers so a bit of patience is a good thing. For Drivers entirely from scratch we'll include a guide.

I'm doing very in depth work with my Latte Panda utilizing my new power supply, also making good use of my Asus Tinker Board, and of course my Raspberry Pi 3 - which I'll at least partially commit to gaming. For a look at some fundamental thinking about the device I encourage to you to read "Building a Case."
